Blue Ribbon Coalition

The Blue Ribbon Coalition (BRC) is a recreation industry coalition, but also has members from the timber, oil, and mining industries. While it may not seem like the recreation industry would have much in common with timber and oil, all of these industries profit from having open access to public lands, whether it be for off-road-vehicles or extracting oil. BRC lobbies to keep public lands open and often rallies against the endangered species act, but due to their wide membership, they often oppose almost any environmental regulation.

Some notable funders of the BRC are the American Petroleum Institute, Communities for a Great Northwest, Honda, International Snowmobile Industry Association, Kawasaki, Marathon Oil, Suzuki, and Yamaha.
